Book Review


Olive, Ryan, and their dad are all on a camping trip. While walking their dog Bailey one last time before packing up their campsite, Bailey gets free and runs off. Bailey is found by none other than a wild boy named Forest, who has clothes made out of leaves and sticks. When they get home, they find another surprise - Forest is sleeping in their backseat! Times at their house are full of fun as Forest gets used to living inside. But he has to learn his manners before Gam Gam’s birthday party that evening to see if he can pass the test. However, Gam Gam turns out to have a soft heart under her stony demeanor, and Forest may get to stay after all.
